TechNexion expanded its EDM computer-on-module line with models based on new Freescale i.MX6 SoCs, including one with the new, IoT-oriented i.MX6 UltraLite.

All three modules conform to EDM’s smallest, 82 x 60mm EDM1 format, and use the standard’s Type 1 signal assignment option.

Linux++ is intended to ultimately be replaced by an operating system designed from scratch for The Machine, which HP calls Carbon," according to one of the earlier reports.
